Forward One, Back Two
forward one, back two
I made a vow today to eliminate some of the stresses in my life. No more nightly news; recant my offer to have Thanksgiving at my house; stop entertaining thoughts of buying that handyman's special (piece of crap) down the block; avoid my sister's boyfriend at all costs; write a letter to the parents of all 500 kids in the school telling them that unless I get some help, there will be no reading program this year. I felt better as soon as I made those decisions. Fitter. Happier. More Productive. And I promised not to take on any added stress.
So what did I do just moments ago? I signed up for nanowrimo . What is nanowrimo, you ask? It is National Novel Writing Month. On November 1, I will begin writing a 50,000 word novel. It must be submitted by midnight, November 30. I am so out of my mind. And when I do have that inevitable nervous breakdown, I'm taking D down with me because it's his fault I heard about it.
